Push Festival 2019: Call out for Theatre Commissions

We are thrilled to open theatre commissions for our annual Push Festival aiming to uncover some of the North West’s most exciting theatre makers and companies, artists who are making waves, asking questions and delivering explosive experiences. Push is our annual celebration of the North West’s most creative talents. Over two weeks every January, our stages, screens and spaces are dedicated to showcasing some of the most exciting film, theatre and visual art from around the region.

The North West and Greater Manchester is home to some of the most exciting and vibrant artists and companies who make work that thrills, excites and challenges audiences. Push is a chance to immerse audiences in two weeks’ worth of new and extraordinary theatrical experiences made by these fantastic theatre makers, some never seen before and some that demand to be seen again.

For Push 2019 we are looking for three theatre makers, companies or artists to present a production in this year’s festival.

We want to hear from a wide range of artists from across the region and we particularly welcome applications from those currently under-represented in the industry, including Black, Asian and minority ethnic and disabled artists.

Push 2019 Festival Dates: Fri 11 Jan – Sat 26 Jan 2019

Submissions are now open.

Deadline for expressions of interest: 5pm, 12th August
